What's the difference between a septic tank and a cesspit?
Septic tanks are a fundamental part of the sewage treatment system and typically they have an outlet that runs through directly to a soakaway system, which is a solution to standing surface water collection.
A cesspit, on the other hand, is a holding tank that comes without an outlet for waste to be deposited through. Rather than being part of the sewage waste system, a cesspit acts as a singular storage solution for commercial or household waste.
What are some of the warning signs of a full septic tank?
If your septic tank is full, you will be experiencing a couple of the following problems around your commercial premise or home:
Water that is slow to drain and empty out of sinks, showers or baths
Drainpipes that consistently gurgle
An abundance of backed-up sewage being found within toilet bowls or sinks
